Book Traveling Thursdays

Hi guys! How are you doing? I'm really tired so I'm thankful this is a short post. I'm back with another book travelling Thursday because I had a lot of fun last time. I love looking at covers! Today's theme is: Choose a book with your favorite bookish mom.
And although it's not mother's day here in Argentina yet, I though it was a fun theme. 

This is what it consists of: Pick a book that fits the theme, explain why I chose it and then include pictures of the original cover, the cover from my country, my favorite cover, and my least favorite cover.

Let's do this!

My favorite bookish mom has obviously got to be Molly Weasley. And, who doesn't love her? She has an unending love for her children. And food. Lots of food. Who wouldn't want that?

So let's see the original Harry Potter cover:

Harry Potter's life is miserable. His parents are dead and he's stuck with his heartless relatives, who force him to live in a tiny closet under the stairs. But his fortune changes when he receives a letter that tells him the truth about himself: he's a wizard. A mysterious visitor rescues him from his relatives and takes him to his new home, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

After a lifetime of bottling up his magical powers, Harry finally feels like a normal kid. But even within the Wizarding community, he is special. He is the boy who lived: the only person to have ever survived a killing curse inflicted by the evil Lord Voldemort, who launched a brutal takeover of the Wizarding world, only to vanish after failing to kill Harry.

Though Harry's first year at Hogwarts is the best of his life, not everything is perfect. There is a dangerous secret object hidden within the castle walls, and Harry believes it's his responsibility to prevent it from falling into evil hands. But doing so will bring him into contact with forces more terrifying than he ever could have imagined.

Full of sympathetic characters, wildly imaginative situations, and countless exciting details, the first installment in the series assembles an unforgettable magical world and sets the stage for many high-stakes adventures to come.

Now the cover available in Argentina

It's ugly, I know. 

My favorite cover is hard to pick because there are a lot of gorgeous ones. My top 2 are:

The first one is a leather bound edition, which I find stunning. And the second one is the 2014 illustrated edition. The artwork in that one is just too beautiful to ignore.

Lastly, the ugliest cover has got to be the Persian one. It's just so creepy.

Okay, that's all for now. See you next time!

Do you think you can find an uglier cover? Which is your fave character from the HP world? Let me know!
